    Hello. This is my first post but i have read around on the forums quite a lot. Ok so i have been trying to get gamecube games to work. Im using usb loader gx. When i go to credits to check if dios mios is installed i cant find it anywhere. I have tried both version 2.10 and 2.11 trying to get it to work. The wads install just fine but dios mios doesnt appear anywhere in the credits. When i tried wiiflow the game loaded on my usb harddrive showed up but it it just shows a black screen when i attempt to play it. on usb loader gx the games dont show up even if i set it to show gamecube games. I havent tried dios mios lite yet but im getting frustrated with the full version. I have d2x cios 249 v8 as well as ios 236.

    I've followed many many different tutorials and I have read up on it a lot. I don't need another tut I just need to figure out how to get dios mios to be found in USB loader gx. I tried dios mios lite and it worked somewhat. It worked a little bit on wiiflow (game loaded but the menus didn't work correctly) and not at all on USB loader gx. It just gives me a u need to update screen even though I have the latest released version of USB loader gx.

    Make sure that your custom paths are correct in usb-loader gx, as well as file directory.

    For Dios Mios: HDD/games/folder(name doesn't matter)/game.iso <-- The file needs to be named G-A-M-E
    For Dios Mios lite: SD/games/folder(name doesn't matter)/game.iso

    When you go to the credits, look in the top right corner and it will tell you which Dios Mios you have installed. Under the settings, make sure that you have "Mios" selected too.

    Most HDD's don't work with Dios Mios, so be prepared to have to use the lite version. If you have it all configured correctly and the game still won't load then it is most likely your HDD. I have tried 3 seperate HDD's and only one has worked.

    You THINK you have the latest version of USB loader gx but no one else knows if you never specify it!
    oh god, how many times I have to repeat this...

    Use Nintendont instead. Much easier to setup has a lot less hard drive problems.

    Not to mention it's made by the same guy

    Right on man. Ninendont is a lot easier to install since you don't have to patch your mios.
